Chain freewheel
Reliable load handling

03. A bit more needed?​

The self-closing KITO safety hook locks automatically as soon as a load is attached. To release the load, the operator must unlock the hook manually. This prevents unintentional opening. The safety hook ensures complete safety when lifting, as the safety flap cannot be removed.
The beam clamp is available in a wide range of load capacities from 1,000 kg to 10,000 kg and can be adjusted to the most common beam types. For wide I-beams, particularly wide versions are available for load capacities of 3,000 kg and 5,000 kg. The beam clamp can also be used both as a lifting point and as a load suspension device.
